The Golden Retriever’s bright golden coat is their pride. To let that coat stay bright and shiny requires a lot of maintenance. Not only for the appearance but to keep your golden healthy, a proper grooming routine is necessary.


Here’s a simple guide to grooming a golden retriever

First Thing’s First

Start by training your dog to let you touch its body, including the head, ears, mouth, and feet.

Once your dog has accepted the treat, set a standard monthly, weekly, and non-disruptive schedule.

Keeping your dog in good condition requires routine

On the day of preparation, assemble the tools before you start. In addition to your favorite company-kept playlist, here’s a list of everything you’ll need to fix Golden:

  • Pin the brush
  • Metal comb with medium to wide teeth
  • Quality quality shampoo
  • Canine conditioner or shampoo with conditioner
  • Towels
  • Canine air hairdryer cool
  • Canine bath or indoor bath or shower
  • Canine grooming table or outdoor picnic table
  • Canine depletion scissors
  • Canine bright or sharp scissors
  • Canine nail clippers or Dremel
  • Canine toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Disposable toothpaste
  • Animal ear cleansing solution
  • Synthetic drugs and ticks

Regular grooming of the coat, feet, teeth, ears, and eyes of the dog will also pay for health benefits. If lumps or skin diseases appear, you will see them early enough to visit a veterinarian for a check-up.

Coat Management

The thick, water-repellent Golden coat lasts moderately throughout the year and once or twice a year. Regular brushing before and after bathing helps to remove old hair.

For heavy shedding, brush with a pin brush once a day to remove dead hair and keep it from getting all over the house. For regular use, brush once a week, but do not use a bristle brush as it will not penetrate the thick gold coat. 

For combined tresses, Doctors recommend spraying the coat with water or using a coat conditioner to make the job easier. With a smooth coat, it is best to brush it dry. Use the comb on the back of the ears, chest, legs, and tail.

Back, brush your whole body with a pin brush to remove any dead underwear and collect debris, such as shoots or front lines, and brush the coating as it grows.

Wash regularly before bathing. Goldens who participate in the medical work will need to wash, brush, and shave before every visit. Dogs that go to reunion shows are prepared before every show, while friends at the Golden House benefit from a monthly immersion.

When bathing, wet the dog until it is on the skin before applying a quality canine stamp and conditioner. This reduces dryness and hair sticks to all sides.

Wash the coat twice, as the double Gold coat saves the car. Dry towel completely.

Give the dog a few minutes to run and dry air. To make the process easier, put the dog on the grooming table. Use a canine hairdryer, which is much cooler than a human hairdresser and will not burn the hair. Blow air towards the skin on one side as the hair grows. Follow by brushing in another way. 

Gold jackets may not straighten or line the necks, but the texture is important. The topcoat protects the body from water and garden barrels and should wrap around the body like a jacket. 

To preserve the purpose and appearance of the garment, do not cut or cut it. Don’t trim the hair under the body, legs, and tail. For dogs that do not go to the show, use scissors to reduce these areas.

Nails and Paws

Start handling your dog’s feet as soon as you bring them home. This prepares them for the cutting of the nail and the pad in the future. Conscientious farmers take the feet of their puppies when they are days old.

On the Golden Retriever side, feet joined to the soles do not require special care, as outdoor exercise often affects the paws. But nails and thick pockets of the type require regular care.

Keeping your nails short reduces the risk of cracking and cracking. Cutting once a month with dog clippers or Dremel does the job, while dog nails get the nearest trim once a week.

You can take your Gold to a trained groom to take care of your nails, but with practice and patience, you can learn to do this yourself.

To keep the dog from pulling on slippery surfaces, the hair under the feet between the pipes needs to be cut regularly. Use sharp canine scissors. Or, if you feel hesitant to do this job, choose a pair of scissors.

Check between your toes for any roads or grass lumps and remove them immediately.

“If you choose to take your dog to a guide to take care of the coat and feet, plan a visit once every four to six weeks.

Oral care

Every dog ​​needs dental care. Start opening your dog’s mouth and touching their gums and teeth a few days after you bring them home. This helps prepare them for cleaning by brushing their teeth with a canine or toothbrush and paste.

Brushing three times a week will reduce the chances of tooth decay.

When visiting a veterinarian, ask when your dog may need a professional dental cleaning.

Ears, Eyes, and Skin Care

Golden’s covered and floppy ears are at risk of ear infections. Check your ears once a week for debris and infection and clean if necessary.

Goldens who love to swim will need regular ear tests, as the water gets inside the ear and makes them more prone to infections. After swimming, dry the inside of the ears thoroughly with cotton balls.

Goldens do not easily penetrate dry skin, but acne will produce allergies and hot spots. Keeping your Golden flea without a key is important.
